Abstract

Analysis of wave drift forces for a Very Large Floating Structure (VLFS) is presented. The drift force can be calculated either by the far-field method or by the near-field method. This paper focuses on the near-field method, by which the drift force acting on the floating body alone can be calculated even when it is accompanied by breakwaters. Numerical examples for drift force on a VLFS close to a breakwater are presented, where the effect of the breakwater is found to be remarkable.
